Ultium Cells hits production milestone
Ultium Cells, a manufacturer for battery cells with a plant in Warren, says it has built more than 10 million battery cells at its plant.
According to a news release from the company, this achievement marks a major step forward in Ultium's mission to lead the charge in supporting the transportation industry in its pursuit of an all-electric future.
"Achieving this significant milestone would not have been possible without cross-functional collaboration, hard work and dedication from our entire team," said Ultium Cells Ohio Plant Director Kareem Maine.
Ultium Cells is a joint venture between General Motors and LG Energy Solution that will mass-produce Ultium battery cells to advance the push for a zero-emissions, all-electric future.
Ultium Cells will provide battery cell capacity to support GM's North American electric vehicle assembly capacity of more than 1 million units by mid-decade, while supporting GM plans to supply other automotive companies and other industries including rail, aerospace, heavy trucking and marine customers.
